Dawah at a buffet

Asalamu Alaikum!

Very strange indeed, today as my family and I went out to eat at a buffet, my mother started to have a discussion with the man sitting across from us. When I came back with my plate of spaghetti -yum-, I heard my mother saying that I wore the headscarf but my little sister did not. Seeing as how my mother wore it as a masar -tied in the back onto her bun- I decided to explain to him. I felt pretty proud of myself:
Guy: So why do you wear it?

Me: Because in my religion, Islam -okay so I assumed he knew it was Islam-, God tells us to be modest and to cover ourselves. I am not an object, and people should see me for my personality not my body. I chose to wear it. Anything else?

Guy: Thank you...You sound like a -insert city here- native?

Me: Why yes, I was born here...

Guy: What high school do you attend?

Me:... -insert High school-

Guy: Interesting, thank you very much, but why does your sister not wear it?

Me: Well some people choose to wear and some don't, and my sister is too young to wear it, when she's in her teens.... (fade into silence)

And so he said thanks, I 'your welcome'-ed and such and such... Kind of awkward with the whole High school thing -cough-
But either way I feel very proud of myself! I think I presented myself well >.>

Soooo, after that we went to see Yes Man. Besides the stupid kissing scenes, it was interesting. However, I wanted to see Bedtime Stories. At the moment, I shall be watching Tropic Thunder, hopefully it'll be slightly better.

Ma'Salama
